The term “gency” refers to situations where the accused must be immediately released from the custody. This is when emergency bail is needed.
A bail release allows the defendant be released from custody without having to wait until the bail hearing. If the defendant suffers of a medical issue or another issue in the family that needs immediate attention, this bail can prove crucial.
To get bail in the event of a bail violation, the individual or family members must call an agent for bail who will facilitate the process of posting bail. The bail bondsman may require the payment of a fee usually a percentage of the total bail amount. A bail bondman will deposit the total bail amount for the defendant.
Note that emergency bail is not made a guarantee and is subject to the judgment of the judge. A valid reason must be presented by the defendant when requesting bail. It could be due to an illness, family crisis or any circumstance that requires immediate attention. If the court rejects the bail application, the defendant will have to wait for their bail hearing in order to be freed from the detention.
